Celebrating the Hall of Fame on Our Side of the Pond
“British Invasion” Legends The Zombies return home to celebrate their long-awaited Induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
With over 330,000 votes in the public poll, The Zombies joined Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, and Roxy Music as the Hall of Fame’s 2019 Class, at a Ceremony taking place exactly 50 years to-the-day after their classic “Time of the Season” first hit #1 on the charts.
Led by founding members, vocalist Colin Blunstone and keyboardist Rod Argent, alongside Steve Rodford on drums, guitarist Tom Toomey, and Søren Koch on bass, The Zombies are also in the studio recording the follow-up to their 2015 Billboard-charting album, Still Got That Hunger. The band’s live performances, described by Rolling Stone as “absolutely triumphant”, take fans on a journey from their early 1960’s singles “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No.”…their 1968 masterpiece Odessey & Oracle…favourites from the post-Zombies careers of Colin Blunstone and ARGENT.…right to today with brand-new songs from their forthcoming album!
This is a very rare opportunity to see this legendary band in the intimate surroundings of our venue and is not to be missed.
Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, two true stalwarts of classy English pop, have reunited after three decades under the moniker of their former outfit, The Zombies. Their reunion has been enthusiastically embraced by the public, thanks to a hot band, some superlative new material, and a stage repertoire that draws heavily upon their much-cherished catalogue of Zombies and solo hits. In their day, the Zombies were one of the few English bands of the 1960s that enjoyed true global popularity, with two American number ones, chart records throughout the rest of the world, and a deep and lasting affection for their music. Dominated by Colin's breathy vocals, choral backup harmonies, and Rod's shining jazz and classical influenced organ and piano, the band sounded utterly unique for its era.
